This recipe was very tasty and I would certainly use it again. I only did two things differently. I had deeply browned wings from the turkey so placed them in the bottom of the crock pot first. I used Lawry's seasoned salt in place of the regular salt. I didn't make the dumplings as we were not going to use all of the soup and I didn't know how well they would hold up.

Made with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Delicious. I did add more spices to knock it up a bit. Would make again, great use for extra chicken or turkey, and love the use of the crockpot.

With the addition of a few more herbs and increasing the poultry seasoning amount, this recipe is the one I use with both turkey and chicken for the basic stew. I like to make slick/flat dumplings though. Those fluffy dumplings tend to melt too readily.

Simple and easy preparation. Instead of Turkey I used chicken leg quarters since I haven't done a Turkey yet. But, it will be a good recipe for later when I have the Turkey leftovers. As well, I don't have Bisquick on hand so I made easy scratch dumplings with Flour, Salt, Parsley, Butter and Milk.

I make this dish all the time as it is so tasty. It is a staple in my house during the winter months. I don't make the biscuits though as I don't want the extra calories.

I did not have turkey so I substituted chicken instead. My husband and I both loved it! It was hearty and full of flavor. I'm putting this on our list of favorites.
